Beacon Behavioral, LLC, formerly known as Synergy, was first established in 1998 as a free standing Community Mental Health Center in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Today, Beacon employs over 300 caring staff members at seven different outpatient locations in Louisiana, including Baton Rouge, Metairie, Slidell, Hammond, Bogalusa, Alexandria, and Opelousas as well as five hospitals located in New Orleans, Westbank, Lacombe, Bunkie and Lutcher.
Beacon’s mission—“to provide unsurpassed patient care in a compassionate, cost effective, and ethical manner”—has been, and will always be, the cornerstone of Beacon’s success. We are proud to offer our clients superior mental health programs that focus on putting their needs first and help them see “a Guiding Light Towards a Brighter Tomorrow.”
At Beacon, we believe that our success is measured by the extent at which we help others. Beacon’s multidisciplinary team integrates a holistic approach to treating clients. Our programs incorporate every facet of assistance with those stressors that may be contributing to our clients decline. These include: managing their behavioral disturbances and psychiatric disorders, investigating and securing available community resources for their primary needs (housing, food, clothing), and navigating the complexities of medication compliance. We gather all necessary resources to develop and implement a livable discharge plan that maximizes a client’s potential to improve their lives in the community.
“When I came here, I was as nervous as a long-tailed cat in a room full of rockers. But they helped me get much calmer and the nerves are so much better than before. I was also depressed and that’s gotten better too. I want to thank all the staff for all they’ve done for me. Beacon’s done an extremely good job for me and I’ll recommend them whenever I get the chance.” –J.M., Jackson
